Orange05: Great work :D

Are you going over to watch the games?

There are some good matches there

I'm surprised Scotland aren't in Blue Group :?:

Has the Women's schedule been released yet?

A week of lacrosse in summer in Amsterdam? Tempting, very tempting!

The Blue Group seems to have been based on the final standings from Euro 2008, which may be a bit harsh on the Scots who were the third-ranked European team at the last Worlds (behind England and Germany)

Yes, if you go to the England Lacrosse Facebook home page there are some 'wall photos' from the EC12 website showing all the men's and women's games

Nice:) I've been planning to go to Amsterdam in June anyway :) I guess that's one more incentive to go:)

That's a massive win. I've booked to go over on the evening of 28th June so will see semis and final (I originally planned to fly over Friday night but got a bt giddy on the Easy Jet website and accidentally booked an extra night, honest love!).

A whole week out there as a spectator would DESTROY me. I'm a bit worried about 4 nights :worried smiley thing:
